I Crack Myself Up!

Not me lol, I Crack Myself Up is just the title of my layout as my son certainly finds himself totally hysterical on a regular basis although I have to say so do we most of the time as he has always been a bit of a clown!  I used the very cute On the Go paper range.

Although you you can't really see it in these photos I actually cut all the circles out of the white cardstock with a craft knife and then stuck pieces of patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad behind the circles.  You can see it quite clearly in real life and I think it looks much nicer than if I had of just cut the circles and stuck them on but then I am a sucker for punishment!  The fab stitching stamp I used in between the circles is from an old set of Hero Arts stamps that has a load of different stitch stamps.

Patterned Paper : On The Go 6x6 Paper Pad; On The Go Gears
Stickers : On The Go Combo Sticker
Noteworthy : On The Go

This card using the very beautiful Ambrosia collection was for the card challenge on the Bo Bunny blog where you had to make a shaped card and use handmade flowers.  This collection is so beautiful and so easy to use!

I know I have been very absent in the blogging and online world again, besides normal life my parents are currently visiting me for a month from South Africa and I have also been busy working on some commissions and just haven't had much time to get online!  I actually have a few things to upload to my blog so hopefully I will find some more time to get online soon! :)
